After touring extensively, including the National Gallery in Canberra, the University of Woollongong, and the Arthouse in Melbourne, Buttress took the new songs she’d been trying out on audiences (like ‘Dexodus’ and ‘I Like’) and placed them alongside live experiments with AudioMulch (with source material ranging from Guns N Roses, to Crystal Waters, to Wu Tang Clan), as well as several pieces she’d composed for other projects (including ‘Some Assembly Required’s 50/50 compilation). Continues in her fine tradition of straddling the line between breakcore, mashup, and pure dada.

AF039 – BOK Darklord

Quite possibly one of the greatest albums ever made, this untitled release is the meeting of two of Australia’s most interesting, most underground, and most belligerently misanthropic sound-artists. Any collaboration between Buttress O’Kneel, with her sample-happy postpop cheeky-as-a-schoolgirl breakmashing, and Lucas Darklord, with his dark grinding corporate evil-as-a-business-retreat scrapescapes, was sure to be extreme. But their decision to cover the entirety of Led Zeppelin’s fourth album, track by track, using no source-material but the original songs themselves, makes an extremity that will perhaps awaken the sleeping Rock Gods, dormant since Bonham’s untimely vomit-inhaling demise. A rock-purist’s worst nightmare, and a sample-police’s greatest dream, this album marks the year 2009 as a year when THINGS CHANGED.

Now FUCKEN ROCK!
